I always look forward to a new Milly Johnson book as I know I’ll be guaranteed a fabulous read. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day is such an apt story that seems so much more perfect in the unprecedented circumstances we are all living in at the moment. We want stories to escape to, stories to charm us and warm our hearts but we also want relatable stories. Milly Johnson’s latest novel is all this and more.
When six travellers from all walks of life find themselves stuck in the worse snow storm for years they find shelter in an inn in the midst of the Yorkshire countryside. With no landlord or staff around the wary travellers have no option but to make themselves at home. And they did as the snow continued for a few days the six soon found themselves learning more about each other and forgetting about their lives outside of the four walls of the inn and just concentrate and enjoy the present.
This story is full of the author’s wonderful Yorkshire charm and wit that her readers have become accustomed to. It is beautifully sad and poignant but I also experienced joy and warmth throughout. At the end of the novel I felt tingles of emotion running through me and for some time after I could still sense the feelings I felt.
Just simply brilliant and the air of magic and wonder of Figgy Hollow has left me spellbound.
